Welsh Government's Consultation on Childcare Sufficiency Assessment Duty

PAVO will submit a response to this Consultation to Welsh Government.  If you want to have any issues raised in a 3rd sector response from Powys then please email any comments to Yvonne Owen-Newns, Children & Young People's Facilitator at PAVO.


Review of the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment Duty on Local Authorities

This consultation document sets out a proposal for the future development of Childcare Sufficiency Assessments (CSAs) in Wales.
Start of consultation: 07/08/2014
End of consultation: 30/10/2014
This consultation seeks views on how the CSA process and content of the CSAs may be improved and made fit for purpose to meet the needs of all stakeholders who have a vested interest in childcare. These include:
  • Practitioners and policy makers in the public, private and voluntary sectors who are either involved in undertaking the CSAs or whose policy area interacts with the CSAs
  • Childcare providers (potential and existing) and those who benefit from the childcare on offer, such as parents, carers, employers, children and young people.
The Welsh Government in Building a Brighter Future: Early Years and Childcare Plan commits to reviewing the duty on local authorities to undertake a CSA.
